Our Tick Control Company in Hilton Head Examines Common Tick Myths
December 20, 2022
Are you in need of a reliable tick control company for your home in Hilton Head? In addition to our trusted service to destroy mosquitoes, Mosquito Hunters™ provides expert solutions against these arachnids as well. In fact, we utilize the same effective process that includes property inspections to disrupt breeding, along with our powerful barrier treatments. Our process destroys occupying ticks with each treatment and can provide your property with three weeks of ongoing protection.
As part of our overall commitment to reduce tick bites and protect local homeowners, we’d also like to share some vital information about common tick-related myths. Here are three misconceptions about how to react once you’ve been bitten.
Common Tick Myths Debunked
Myth #1: Cover it with soap. Do not add any substance to the attached tick and the surrounding area of your skin. Doing so will make the problem worse, as the tick is likely to panic and release larger quantities of its toxin.
Myth #2: Torch it. Another common mistake is that people assume fire will get the tick to let go. With their solid exoskeleton, this will have little effect on the tick. Instead, you’ll burn your skin.
Myth #3: Lyme disease is inevitable. When it comes to tick bites, Lyme disease is the number one fear. However, it’s important to understand that ticks need over a day to infect you with this disease. So, as long as you carefully remove the creature within that timeframe, you are likely to be fine. We recommend using a pair of tweezers to remove the attached tick. Be sure to get the entire body and dispose of it as soon as it is removed.
